Together we will analyze sample photographs and discuss composition techniques, including eliminating distractions, using leading lines and the Rule of Thirds to create more interesting images.
In addition, Luis will accompany you and a small group photographers and put into practice expert composition instruction while in the field. Each day will bring a new experience, special lessons and the opportunity for you to photograph beautiful landscapes with one on one instruction.
